As Packer says, "the central focus in Christianity is the knowledge ... of Christ crucified." This is a great read by a great Christian for all Christians of today. It comprises 3 sections: 1) the knowledge of Christ crucified; 2) a discourse on Christ our Passover with 3 subsections (Christ is our Passover, Christ is a sacrifice, Christ was sacrificed for us); 3) the voluntariness of Christ's death. As the editor says, "whoso wants to climb Jacob's ladder, to see angels, to touch the stars, to become intoxicated with heavenly emotions, to stand near the Gate of Gethsemane and to have his heart wrung with feelings of adoration at the goodness of God - let him read on." Although first published in 1684 and this edition has been simplified by the explanation of many words and phrases not familiar to the average reader of today, you the reader will be richly rewarded by taking the time and trouble to sit down to learn at the feet of this Puritan about the glories of Christ crucified, our crucified Saviour. Persevere with your reading. Take it slowly and meditate. Well worth buying. A treasure. A classic.

Very good, but it is more for those who enjoy "going deeper into Bible truth"

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Would Have Thought 9 May 2014
By Frank - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most Christians, at least in the modern day American church, have the theological depth of a sidewalk puddle after a short drizzle of rain. The idea that one could write almost 200 pages detailing and explaining the depth and wonders of the atoning work of Christ is, for most christians, unthinkable. Stephen Charnock masterfully displays the glories of Christ's work on the cross and in the hearts of the penitent sinner. If you want a deeper understanding of how your Savior saves you, this is a great read! Biblically based, and theologically sound, this is a must read for every christian - whether you are a babe needing some milk, or full grown man longing for the meat of God's word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gospel! 11 April 2014
By SLIMJIM - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thought this book was a good summary of the Gospel and what Christ did on the cross. Our broken relationship with God due to our sins are mentioned, and also the effects of Christ's work on the cross in devastating Satan's kingdom.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Puritan's View of the Atonement 4 Oct. 2005
By Michael Kear - Published on
Format: Paperback
Here we have a dandy little volume of just under 200 pages published in Scotland by Christian Heritage (Christian Focus Publications). The writing is deep, painstaking, and littered with Scriptural references - as is common among most puritan writers. But when I say deep, I mean really deep. This book is difficult to read in some sections due to Charnock's depth of focus and intentional building from one point to the next, sewing, as it were, a tapestry of the puritan theology of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Although it takes some stamina for the present day USAmerican mind to make it through, perseverance is well worth the effort.

Charnock is a no-nonsense kind of guy. Though instructive and gentle, his swift quill is oft times sharp enough to draw blood. Consider this quote from page 110, "Those who lay claim to a relation to God without imitation of him are not children but bastards. They may be of his family by instruction but not by descent. There is no implantation in Christ without an imitation both of the Creator and Redeemer." Ouch.

What I did NOT find helpful was the attempted "modernizing" of some of the phrases and terms used by Charnock. The publisher tried to make the book more understandable by inserting short definitions and alternate wordings in parenthesis in the text. All this did was irritate me. The text should be left alone, and if I need help on a 17th century term, I'll look it up.

Overall, I give it three stars out of five. Charnock's massive work, "The Existence and Attributes of God," though nearly 1,200 pages long is a better read and a more comprehensive theology. But if you are looking for a quick study into the puritan mind of Stephen Charnock, this book will keep you busy for an evening or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent work! 30 July 2010
By JM - Published on
Format: Paperback
This title deserves to be on the shelf of every Bible believing Christian. In this publication we find a brief outline of the atonement and what it means; it couldn't be a more important topic for modern evangelicals.
